I left the kids at Grandma's house for a day, and my 5-month-old son Gaston got his first Model T ride in the car his Great-great-grandpa bought new.
Great photo and family history with the T
So when is the first driving lesson scheduled for?
The whole while gramma and I were giving him his first ride he was smiling.
Coll way to get him started. Tim
Cool way to get him started on the T hobby. Tim
Who is enjoying that more, Dean or the boys?
Dean, how do you get that past your kids? I have two grands, age 3 and age 1. The parents will let them lap sit in the car but no driving... not until they are out of car seats.... about age 12 years here in Califunny!
Terry, was I supposed to ask?
Terry, it helps when the baby's Dad (me) has 3 Model Ts of his own.
That is a great family event. A T ride has to be beneficial to the growth of any youngster. This Mother appeared at a coffee stop and showed enough interest to get a T ride. When we got back several more had gathered for rides. I seemed to be the only Tourist willing to rise above my better judgment and give rides. It has always felt like the right thing to do.
Derek, I'm glad you shared this with us.
Derek..we also share your passion, as our daughter and son-in-law are visiting from Texas with our 3 month old granddaughter. She had her first Model T ride on May 7th 2017. Hopefully our granddaughter will share the same enthusiasm for our 1927 Model T as we do.
I figure I'm about 5 years or less away from being in the grandkids business. Can't wait.
Wife and I took the grand kids to get a snow cone on Saturday.
Derek, careful with those T rides. With both grandsons they are addicted, in the good weather that's all they want to do and I can't get anything done. Good excuse anyhow.
I'm always glad to see people giving total strangers a ride. It's quite a contrast from some on this very forum who are so scared they will get sued that they think anyone who would give someone a ride is totally na´ve and setting themselves up for financial failure.
Hal; Jacksonville being a military town I make it a point that if I run across a "Blood Brother" I offer them a ride in my "T". Usually their family members haven't seen that "Ipana Smile" in a very long while.
